DH approves list of suppliers for practice IT systems

A streamlined national IT network for general practice is a step closer after eight companies won a place on the government’s list of approved providers.

Under the GP Systems of Choice initiative, eight of the nine companies that bid for the lucrative contracts offered by Connecting for Health have won a share of the work.

Chairman of GPC information management and technology subcommittee Dr Paul Cundy said: “I’m satisfied that the companies that have won the work are all capable of doing it well.”

PCTs will now be able to sign up to one of these companies: CSC Computer Sciences, EMIS, In Practice Systems, iSoft, Healthy Software, Microtest, Seetec Business Technology Centre and Waveform Solutions.
